Notice from the Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA) 11.08.22 regarding Prior Authorization process for initials and extensions

Please be advised that when assessing all ABA prior authorization and extension requests, OHCA uses only the information provided in the most recent request. All pertinent information must be included on the OHCA template to be considered complete, even with additional documentation accompanying the request. A determination of authorized hours for ABA services by the OHCA will be final for that request, and no further assessment or reevaluation will be conducted prior to the next extension.  Providers that are given a 6-month prior authorization,  may only submit an early ABA extension after 2 months of consecutive work, and must provide the clinical criteria to support the need for additional hours. Providers that are given a 3-month prior authorization may not request more hours before the end of the authorization period.
